Membrane technology is the future of water treatment and SCMA continues to work tirelessly to bring valuable information to our members. Day One at the Annual Conference features Keynote Speaker, Tom Pankratz with Water Desalination Report. This will be followed by presentations on Membrane Basics.

Day Three offers tracks for both Operators and Engineers, followed by a session dedicated to Potable Reuse and MBR.
